- If I had to be born again, I'd like to be myself again, and if not, I'd like to be Brazilian. -
An explosive time-space of over 200 pages drawn by a neo-cartoonist.
The work depicts an explosive time-space in which spectacular acts performed on a platform that moves from left to right like a conveyor belt are interspersed with the cheers of an enthusiastic audience. Conceived from a Brazilian festival, the work is a grand spectacle that celebrates the origins of the universe, animism, gods, dedication, celebration, and totalitarianism.
The onomatopoeic sounds that characterize Yokoyama's works, such as "do-do-do" and "paka-paka," are added to every frame in this work, a rule that has been established and put into practice. This is a more robust version of Yokoyama's world.
Graduated from Musashino Art University Oil Painting Department in 1990. He was making fine arts, but since 2000 he has chosen comics that can "draw time" as a way of expression. Yokoyama's manga, which is characterized by sprinting lines and onomatopoeia, the flow of time drawn without interruption, and unique characters, is called "neo manga" and is called "new civil engineering", "travel", "NIWA", "NIWA". Many books such as "Baby Boom" and "World Map Room" have been translated and published in countries such as Japan, France, the United States, Italy, Spain, and Russia, and are gaining popularity. In addition, high-quality works such as "BABY BOOM FINAL", which reproduces the original picture of Yokoyama's vivid colors using abundant high-concentration fluorescent colors, have also been published.
